I had this guy in my mind for awhile when I was coming up with faster paintings I could turn into postcards for conventions. While cleaning out my storage room I found all the broken frames that didn't make some convention trips. Instead of chucking them I just took the backs off and decided to gesso them up for canvases. I always feel more comfortable painting on canvas/board/whatever when it is second hand or a bit beat up. Loses a bit in the presentation market but something about my brain feels more complete by the time the painting is done for some reason. Reduce, reuse, recycle? 

The great thing about these frame backings is that they already have hangers on them.

here's the tonal thumbnail sketch to boot.

On a super braggadocious note, here is my set up from Edmonton a few weeks ago. I had a few cages, some cardboard, and half a roll of electrical tape...
Yes I am a wizard

Digimon season/adventure 2 designs I did. This season has always been my favourite one. The story and music were so great and I even love going back to watch it now. Veemon, Flamedramon, and Shurimon had to be my top three.

You can now get these as stickers in my etsy shop by clicking RIGHT HERE

I have a oil painting on the go right now that I'm hoping will turn into something special which I wont have to fix with digital. In the meantime though, here are the colour thumbnails and sketch for my Link and Goliath painting I finished last week!

I thought It would be cool to show off the reference images I had for this too. Before I start an image, I usually spend some time throwing a folder together with images I think will be important reference.

Love that last shot in Wind Waker when (spoiler...?) link pulls that sweet sweet maneuver and drives his sword through Ganondorf's head.

I've added the sketch and colour keys for this on MY TUMBLR

Woooooooo APOP and Conbravo flew by and I'm getting geared up for Otakuthon and FanExpo now. Conbravo was great to be at because it felt like a big hang out. A lot of friends were there :) My band Press Start 2 Play Also had an amazing set there even though there was no sound check or any sound adjustments made while playing. Thank God we had a great crowd on our side.

My first bit of Otakuthon prep came in the form of this fast Persona 4 acrylic painting!!! :D

I'm going to sell some of my more favourable acrylic paintings in postcard format at shows. I will have the original painting on display with the postcards for people to check out.

Yesterday I said I'd come back to your booth and chat today at Edmonton Expo, but you didn't get back from Staples before I had to leave the con. Hope you had a good weekend! Thanks again for the kickass print.

I just watched 'I talk to snakes'' one of the many Youtube videos about Harry Potter and she mentioned a T-shirt and the artist who made the design on it. I have got to say that I don't regret clinking on the deviantart link in the description bar. You are GREAT!! I love your style :)
